The sweetest joy, the wildest woe is love.
      - Festus (sc. Alcove and Garden) [Love]

Poets are all who love,--who feel great truths,
  And tell them.
      - Festus (sc. Another a a Better World)
        [Poets]

Imagination is the air of mind.
      - Festus (sc. Another and a Better World)
        [Imagination]

The dew,
  'Tis of the tears which stars weep, sweet with joy.
      - Festus (sc. Another and a Better World)
        [Dew]

The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat one's self.

My favoured temple is in an humble heart.
      - Festus (sc. Colonnade and Lawn) [Heart]

Prayer is the spirit speaking truth to Truth.
      - Festus (sc. Elsewhere) [Prayer]

What are ye orbs?
  The words of God? the Scriptures of the skies?
      - Festus (sc. Everywhere) [Stars]

Could I love less, I should be happier now.
      - Festus (sc. Garden and Bower by the Sea)
        [Love]

Night comes, world-jewelled, . . .
  The stars rush forth in myriads as to wage
    War with the lines of Darkness; and the moon,
      Pale ghost of Night, comes haunting the cold earth
        After the sun's red sea-death--quietless.
      - Festus (sc. Garden and Bower by the Sea)
        [Night]

Surely the stars are images of love.
      - Festus (sc. Garden and Bower by the Sea)
        [Stars]

Blessing star forth forever; but a curse
  Is like a cloud--it passes.
      - Festus (sc. Hades) [Blessings]

Hell is more bearable than nothingness.
      - Festus (sc. Heaven) [Hell]

The stars,
  Which stand as thick as dewdrops on the fields
    Of heaven.
      - Festus (sc. Heaven) [Stars]

The sun, centre and sire of light,
  The keystone of the world-built arch of heaven.
      - Festus (sc. Heaven) [Sun]

Hell is the wrath of God--His hate of sin.
      - Festus (sc. Hell, l. 194) [Hell]

A poet not in love is out at sea;
  He must have a lay-figure.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Poets]

Ah, nothing comes to us too soon but sorrow.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Sorrow]

Both man and womankind belie their nature
  When they are not kind.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Kindness]

Burn to be great,
  Pay not thy praise to lofty things alone.
    The plains are everlasting as the hills,
      The bard cannot have two pursuits; aught else
        Comes on the mind with the like shock as though
          Two worlds had gone to war, and met in air.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Greatness]

Every believer is God's miracle.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Miracles]

For as nightingales do upon glow-worms feed,
  So poets live upon the living light.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Nightingales]

Great thoughts, like great deeds, need
  No trumpet.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Thought]

Kindness is wisdom. There is none in life
  But needs it and may learn.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Kindness]

Lowliness is the base of every virtue,
  And he who goes the lowest builds the safest.
      - Festus (sc. Home) [Humility]
